Cremation Ashes Jewellery Guide

Our Hand on Heart Cremation Ashes Jewellery Guide

Cremation Ashes Jewellery is a meaningful, powerful, and beautiful way to remember a loved one who’s sadly no longer with us. The jewellery has grown in popularity over recent years because it brings comfort and connection, while honouring a loved one and their memories in a beautifully unique way. It offers special comfort because it’s a tangible reminder of a lost loved one by incorporating their cremation ashes and keeping them close.

In this blog, we’ll look at four of the most important elements of cremation ashes jewellery: design, size, colour and inscription, to help you choose your perfect piece.

Choose Your Cremation Ashes Jewellery Design

Our cremation ashes collection includes necklaces, bracelets, charms, cufflinks, rings, charms, tie pins and keepsakes. Our highly skilled designers transfer each tiny grain of cremation ash by hand into your chosen piece. We recommend choosing a design that suits your lifestyle and jewellery-wearing habits. When choosing a cremation ashes jewellery design, it’s also worth considering how frequently you plan to wear the piece – whether it’s an everyday item or one for special occasions. You might also wish to take into account a design that reflects the memory, personality and style of your loved one.Cremation Ashes JewelleryConsider the Size of Your Cremation Ashes Jewellery

Of course, the size of the piece depends on the design. We’ve kept size in mind when designing our collections to offer something for everyone. Whether you prefer the idea of a small but meaningful piece, like a charm or a bead, or an accessory that takes centre stage, like a necklace. We’ve also created necklaces in different designs and sizes. For example, our small heart ashes necklace measures approximately 15mm x 13mm. Our large heart ashes necklace measures approximately 24mm x 21mm – offering you the choice of the same design in two different sizes. Our necklace chains include different lengths depending on the design, too.

How to Choose the Perfect Colour for Your Cremation Ashes Jewellery

Choosing the perfect colour is a significant part of the process. You might want to select a colour related to your loved one, such as their favourite colour, the colour of their eyes, or a colour related to their passion or hobby, like their favourite football club or sports team. Alternatively, you could choose your favourite colour, or a colour that has an important meaning. For example, blue is a calming and relaxing colour that reduces stress. Green restores depleted energy and is a balancing colour. Red is an energising colour that builds confidence. There are many more meanings behind the different colour options we offer in our cremation ashes jewellery collections.

Finally, when you’ve chosen your design, size and colour, the final element is what to inscribe on your piece. Personalisation can work beautifully in many different ways, and your choice of words might depend on your relationship with them, as well as what you want to say and how you want to remember them. You could include an inscription specific to them and your relationship, for example, their birthday or the date you met. Or you could choose an inscription that’s a bit more general. Beautiful ideas include nature and outdoor themes, hobbies and passions, or inspirational words and sayings. Take a look at our inscription ideas blog for some inspiration.

When it comes to inscribing jewellery, some people know exactly what they want to say, whereas others can feel a little lost for words. Either way is normal, as it can feel like a lot of pressure to get it right. Our customer service team frequently answer questions about message wording, so please don’t think you’re alone if you’re unsure of what to include, and don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team.Cremation Jewellery Inscription IdeasWe hope this guide offers some expert guidance about choosing your perfect piece of cremation ashes jewellery.

    Hello Katie,
    We’re truly sorry for the loss of your dear Dad, and our sincerest condolences go out to you during this difficult time.

    Regarding the process of creating jewellery with ashes, we handle the ashes with the utmost care and respect. We only require a small amount, typically no more than a teaspoon’s worth, to craft the requested piece. Any unused ashes are returned to you along with the finished jewellery. The ashes are sealed within the jewellery using a secure and durable resin, ensuring that they are protected and preserved.

    If we can help at all further please send us an email at; and we’d be happy to help further – Team HoH x

    I am devastated to say I lost my gorgeous Dad last week. I’d like to get some jewellery made with his ashes, I just wondered what you do with the ashes, how much you need, and how they are looked after? Many thanks, sorry for all the questions
